This is a farmstead dating back to 1284, on a headland near St David’s. Lower Treginnis is the most westerly farm in Wales.
Children’s author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare founded Farms for City Children at Nethercott House in Devon in 1976. The charity offers urban children from all over the country a unique opportunity to live and work together for a week at a time on a real farm in the heart of the countryside. It is an intense, ‘learning through doing’ experience of a different life – for children who may not know where their food comes from and have limited opportunities to explore the outside world.
At Lower Treginnis, Farms for City Children works in partnership with organic farmer Rob Davies, who keeps 900 sheep and a small herd of Dexter cattle on the surrounding land. In addition the children help look after poultry, horses, donkeys, milking goats and a breeding herd of pigs.
The award-winning buildings were converted and re-structured by Farms for City Children to provide for up to 39 children and their teachers.
